    The Greasy Dozen: John Moorehead

    The Greasy Dozen: John Moorehead
    When it comes to the Greasy Dozen Builder Collective, you never know what you'll see. The range of makes, models, and even styles is so broad, when selecting builders each year we look for things you don't always see and John Moorehead's submission was exactly that! John submitted a 1977 Harley-Davidson Ironhead XLT into the Chopper category. Just from looking at the pictures he submitted, we could tell this wasn't going to be your everyday Ironhead chopper. His submission immediately sent us back to the 1970s when ironhead choppers were everywhere. John clearly had a vision of building a 1970s chopper and he absolutely nailed it with this build. Hop in the time machine and let's head back to the 1970s! Without further ado, let's dive into this interview and learn more about his build.

    The Greasy Dozen: Fred Elwell Shovelhead

    The Greasy Dozen: Fred Elwell Shovelhead
     When it comes to the Greasy Dozen Builder Collective, you never know what you'll see. The range of makes, models, and even styles is so broad, when selecting builders each year we look for things you don't always see and Fred Elwell's submission was exactly that! Fred submitted a 1980 Harley Davidson Shovelhead into the chopper category. Along with his submission photos, he wrote a little bit about his plan to build a swing arm chopper... that got our heads turning, it seems to be a continuous debate within the "chopper world" if a swing arm bike can be considered a chopper. Could Fred's build change the mind of the naysayer's? We had alot of faith in him, and we must say, he absolutely knocked this build out of the park! Without further ado, let's dive into this interview and learn more about his build.

    The Greasy Dozen: Nigel Mount Buell Lightning S3T

    The Greasy Dozen: Nigel Mount Buell Lightning S3T
    When it comes to the Greasy Dozen Builder Collective, you never know what you'll see. The range of makes, models, and even styles is so broad, when selecting builders each year we look for things you don't always see and Nigel Mount's submission was exactly that! Nigel submitted a 2002 Buell S3T Thunderbolt into the tracker category. It's not every day you see a Buell being used as the starting platform for a build. Some of you may have never heard of Buell, and that's not uncommon. The Buell Motorcycle Company had a short lived life, ex-Harley Davidson engineer Erik Buell founded the company in 1983, it was then acquired by Harley Davidson in 2003 and production was ended in 2009. The Buell was a unique motorcycle and many people think Harley's decision to end production was a big mistake. 
    The design of the Buell is intriguing to us, using a tubular frame, cradling a Harley engine... The possibilities with this starting platform seem endless, when Nigel submitted this, we knew we had to pick him. Without further ado, let's dive into this interview and learn more about his build.

    When it comes to the Greasy Dozen Builder Collective, you never know what you'll see. The range of makes, models, and even styles is so broad, when selecting builders each year we look for things you don't always see. When selecting our Lucky 13 builder we look for a compelling story, whether it's a first time builder, female builder or someone who had bad luck and needed a pick-me-up. Dan Swiderski's submission was exactly that! Dan submitted a 1980 Harley FXE into the chopper category, with his submission was a lengthy story on his build and the history behind it, when we finished reading his submission it was a no brainer, Dan had to be selected as our Lucky 13 builder. We won't spoil it for you, we can assure you it's a pretty incredible story, so without further ado, let's dive into this interview and learn more about his build.

    The Greasy Dozen: Chase Sifford XL1000 Tracker

    The Greasy Dozen: Chase Sifford XL1000 Tracker
    When it comes to the Greasy Dozen Builder Collective, you never know what you'll see. The range of makes, models, and even styles is so broad, when selecting builders each year we look for things you don't always see and Chase Sifford's submission was exactly that! Chase submitted a 1977 Harley Davidson Ironhead into the tracker category. It's not every day you see an ironhead built as a tracker, we got so used to trackers being Evo Sportsters that we had to give Chase a chance and see what he could do. 
    Over the years we've seen a resurgence of ironheads as the starting platform of builds, mainly being choppers and the occasional cafe racer. It's not every day you see someone building a tracker with one, chase caught our eye with his submission. It's nice to see a model that once dominated the chopper scene back in the 70s get a fresh new look. Without further ado, let's dive into this interview and learn more about his build.
